 EP 1111B - The Plant Hunter: A Scientists Quest for Nature’s Next Medicines | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Ever taken an aspirin? Thank a willow tree for that. Ever taken an aspirin? Thank a willow tree for that. Ever received a shot of numbing medication at the dentist’s office prior to a procedure? That was originally discovered in a plant too—the cocoa plant from the Andes. What about a painkiller for surgery? Morphine from opium poppy really takes the edge off the post-op pain. Plants are the basis for an array of lifesaving and health-improving medicines we all now take for granted. In her memoir THE PLANT HUNTER: A Scientist’s Quest for Nature’s Next Medicines ethnobotanist Dr. Cassandra Leah Quave shows us how important studying plants is while sharing her own incredible journey.As a person born with multiple congenital defects of her skeletal system, Quave had to get her leg amputated at a young age. While other kids in her class were at football games or school dances, Quave was volunteering her time working at the local ER. Since then her research has brought her to the flooded forests of the remote Amazon, the murky swamps of southern Florida, isolated mountaintops in Albania and Kosovo, and volcanic isles arising out of the Mediterranean. Filled with grit, tragedy, triumph, awe, and scientific discovery, THE PLANT HUNTER illuminates how the path forward for medical discovery may be found in nature’s oldest remedies.THE PLANT HUNTER weaves together Quave’s personal experiences in and with medicine, infection, disability, and scientific discovery with a fascinating and accessible description of how plants and microbes interact, how antibiotic resistance evolves, and how Quave is working to figure out how we may be able to overcome it by taking the focus away from synthetic compounds. An inspiring story of perseverance, THE PLANT HUNTER is an example of how one scientist is helping provide clues for the next generation of advanced medicines.

 EP 1109B - Chemotherapies that Target Mitochondria: New Leukemia Killing Compounds | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Researchers have discovered potential new drugs that work in concert with other drugs to deliver a deadly one-two punch to leukemia.Researchers from Rice University and the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center have discovered potential new drugs that work in concert with other drugs to deliver a deadly one-two punch to leukemia. The potential drugs are still years away from being tested in cancer patients, but a recently published study in the journal Leukemia highlights their promise and the innovative methods that led to their discovery.In previous studies, the research groups of Rice biochemist Natasha Kirienko and MD Anderson physician-scientist Marina Konopleva screened some 45,000 small-molecule compounds to find a few that targeted mitochondria. In the new study, they chose eight of the most promising compounds, identified between five and 30 closely related analogs for each, and conducted tens of thousands of tests to systematically determine how toxic each analog was to leukemia cells, both when administered individually or in combination with existing chemotherapy drugs like doxorubicin.During times of extreme stress, cells can temporarily forgo mitophagy to get an emergency energy boost. Cancer is notorious for hijacking these sorts of programs to fuel pathological growth. For example, previous research has shown leukemia cells have far more damaged mitochondria than healthy cells and are also more sensitive to mitochondrial damage than healthy cells.Natasha joins us today to discuss her findings.

 Food Sanity: How to Eat in a World of Fads & Fiction | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Dr. Friedman shares insights from his book,  Food Sanity,  including his "common science meets common sense" approach to healthy eating in an unhealthy nation.Has all the contradiction on diet and nutrition left you feeling frustrated and confused? Should we follow a Paleo diet and eat like a caveman or go with a plant-based diet and eat like a gorilla? Should we starve ourselves on the latest intermittent fasting diet, or go on a ketogenic diet and eat a lot of fats and low carbs? What about grains? Are they good for us, or a leading cause of disease? Do eggs cause high cholesterol or lower it? All this confusion is enough to make your head spin!It’s the reason why Dr. David Friedman wrote his #1 National Bestselling book, Food Sanity: How to Eat in a World of Fads and Fiction. For two decades as a syndicated television health expert and radio host, he’s interviewed hundreds of scientists, doctors, and best-selling authors hoping to share information to help his audience reach their optimal health. Unfortunately, each guest would contradict the previous expert, creating more confusion than clarity.While most health experts seem to disagree, there is one thing they all agree on, food has the power to heal the body or make it sick. The key is figuring out what should be at the end of our fork.In this episode, Dr. Friedman shares a common science meets common sense approach that puts an end to many of today’s food myths including: You don’t need to drink cow’s milk for strong bones. In fact, research shows it causes brittle bones! Beef doesn’t give us the protein humans require. Fish do not contain toxic levels of mercury and can be eaten every day! Eggs don’t cause high cholesterol, in fact, they lower it! Cavemen were mostly vegetarians and forensic evidence proves it! Grains (with gluten) reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer, lowers blood sugar and aids in weight loss! Counting calories makes you gain weight. Salt (the right kind) isn’t bad for you. In fact, it reduces heart disease, lowers blood pressure and aids in weight loss. Some vitamin supplements are made from toxic ingredients also used to make gasoline, nail polish remover, laundry detergent and ammonia. This segment comes with a WARNING: Be prepared for some major “Aha” moments!

 EP 1108B - Top Wound Care Tips | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Dr. Naz Wahab is a Board-certified physician and a Fellow of the American Professional Wound Care Association who has practiced in Southern Nevada since 2003.  After completion of her residency training, she established her family medicine practice in Las Vegas.  During this time, she encountered and treated countless patients.  This gave her a sense of the gaps in patient care in our community.She joins us today, sharing the following wound management tips with the general public and the advanced wound care solutions like ActiGraft that are currently available.●       Wash your wound. When you first sustain an injury, clean it with anti-bacterial soap and water right away to remove dirt and other debris. Use a soft cloth to clean around the wound and avoid placing soap directly in the wound.●       Keep a clean dressing on your wound. Dressings prevent germs and other bacteria from infecting your wound, as well as prevent further injury. Because fluids that drain from a wound can damage the healthy skin around it, it’s important to change dressings regularly.●       Eat healthily. Having a healthy, appropriate diet gives your immune system the energy it needs to heal efficiently and properly. Leafy green vegetables, eggs, salmon and nuts are rich in protein, which helps wounds heal faster.●       Don’t get wet. If your wound is on a lower extremity, keep it free from water in the shower or bath as water can cause the skin to soften and reopen the wound. Use waterproof covers or an elevated shower chair to help keep moisture out of the wound.●       Consult a doctor. If a wound does not heal in four to six weeks, contact your primary care physician and let them know the progress, or lack thereof, of your wound’s condition. Additional treatments may be needed if a wound continues to fester.
